Transcript of Role Fulfilment

Prime Minister Setting up the debate Model / Mechanism:
Is how are you going to carry out the motion.

Your model can be:
1. Someone elses
2. Someone elses with amendments
3. Think of a new model

Also, models can be soft line, hard line or bat s**t insane.
These are varying degrees of how severe your mech is, and all have their pro's and con's. The proposition summation has an additional role of rebutting the opposition extension.

Summations role is to decide which 'clash' / 'contention' points were most important in the debate and use their speech to show why their side (and in particular their partner) has won.

There should be two to three points of clash. Rebuttal

Extension

1. Bring new points to the debate:
- Do points that have been missed by top-half.
- Build new points out of rebuttal.

2. Add analysis to existing points.
- Bring new / deeper analysis to previously discussed points.
- Bring new perspectives on points:
How will this be
viewed by the media / corporations / legal system. Top Half: Role Fulfilment Week Two Bottom Half: Definition:
A) Who is ‘This House’? Are you the British Government? NATO? Western Liberal Democracies?

B) The definition of ‘Deal with’ will come in your model. Opening Government
1st Proposition Opening Opposition
1st Opposition Case line:
This is what you are trying to prove
in the debate.
Once you have established the problem which the motion wants you to debate and how you are going to solve it;
you must choose a case line which will explain why you want to solve the problem.

Your points should aim to prove and support your case line. Deputy Prime Minister Supporting the case All speeches after the PM should start with
Rebuttal.

Once you have done this, you should give
2-3 points that support what your partner
has said.

You should also cover anything that your
partner missed. Leader of the Opposition Deputy leader of the Opposition Setting up the Opp Case Rebuttal

Case line
All teams on the Prop and the Opp benches have to follow the debate which is set up by 1st Proposition, however, 1st Opposition can choose how to oppose the debate which has been set-up.

Depending on how you wish to oppose props case, you can:
Counter-Prop
or
oppose the propositions Now, Action, Then. Supporting the Opp Case Rebuttal

Then you should give two to three points supporting your partners case. Closing Government

Extension

1. Bring new points to the debate:
- Do points that have been missed by top-half.
- Build new points out of rebuttal.

2. Add analysis to existing points.
- Bring new / deeper analysis to previously discussed points.
- Bring new perspectives on points:
How will this be
viewed by the media / corporations / legal system. NOTE:
Bottom-Half
must follow the
line set by
top-half. Rebuttal

Summations role is to decide which 'clash' / 'contention' points were most important in the debate and use their speech to show why their side (and in particular their partner) has won.

There should be two to three points of clash. NOTE:
C-P's are very
rarely needed
and are
difficult
to do well. Prep time: - You find out your position in the debate and the motion 15 minutes before the start of the debate.
- You will then have 15 minutes to prepare with your partner.
- You can only communicate with your partner during prep time and you are allowed a case file. You must not speak to any other teams, nor may you use the internet. Speeches: - Your speech will last for 5 or 7 minutes (You will be told which before the debate)
- The first and last minute of the speech is ‘Protected’ and will be indicated by a time signal
(A singular bang at one minute, before the final minute. Two bangs to signal that time has been reached.) Points Of Information can only be given or taken during ‘Unprotected time’ (after the first minute to the last minute of a speech.) Taking POIs:

- You should take one, but do not have to take any more than one.
- Aim to take a POI at a clear break in your speech, not mid-point.
- When declining POIs, wave down the speakers standing. Giving POIs:


- To offer a POI: stand, raise your hand,
say “Sir/ Madam/ On that point”.
- Wait to be taken, if waved down, sit down.
- You should wait for 15 seconds after offering a POI before
offering another.
- If accepted, your POI should be a short 10 second point,
directly engaging with what the speaker has said. POI's POC's A Point of Clarification,
if needed, can be offered to the PM by any member of the opposition early on in ‘unprotected time’. They are given in the same manner as a POI but you must say “Point of Clarification” as you stand. The Prime Minister is strongly
encouraged to take any Points of Clarification, as it will give you the opportunity to clarify your case instead of leaving it for the rest of the table to distort.

It is only required if there is an important piece of information missing from the mechanism, or a substantial ambiguity. Rebuttal Rebuttal should not last for
more than 1min.30sec. Rebuttal is direct
engagement with the previous
speakers speech, the point of it is to weaken what may appear to be a strong point, by highlighting leaps or holes in logic or flagging assertions. Can come at the start
of your speech; or if it is substantial rebuttal, you can make a point out of rebuttal. You can also ‘weave’ your rebuttal into your speech if it directly ties in to one of your points, flagging it up as you reach it. Things not to do: Squirrel:
Is when one
does not debate the motion in its intended form. Straw-manning:
Is to blatantly
distort your
oppositions
point / case is
straw-manning. Knife:
Is to change
the case-line of
the top-half,
from the
bottom-half. Equity Violations:
Do not make
insulting, offensive
or derogatory
remarks
or references.
